Susannah was born in the district of Meltham on 20 March 1799, daughter of John Brook and Betty Pearson, and was baptized at the Chapel of Meltham, Yorkshire, on 13 May 1799. It seems probable that she was born at the long-term family home in Edge End.
She married Joseph Barker at All Hallows, Almondbury, on 8 September 1823, after which they lived in Helme and had a daughter Maria together. But thereafter they vanish from the record, and the only relevant indications we have are of daughter Maria living with her paternal grandparents and their family until her death in 1859.
